Your designer or architect takes the project photographs and concept sketches, and uses a 3D modeling and drafting program to produce design visuals that allows you to see what the finished project will look like.
You do not have to depend on your imagination — today’s software allows you see things from many angles. We can even remove a roof and give you a bird’s-eye view of your finished:
Consultation with Our Raleigh-based Designers, Architects & Contractors
At this point, it is critical you review floor plans and elevations, analyzing them for space planning, suitability and construction feasibility. The best ideas for your Raleigh-area home are redrawn and reviewed again. Once the concept is finalized, we print the preliminary drawings.
A meeting is then scheduled at your house for the trades to review the project. They are given a copy of the plans and may ask you questions about your home. This also gives our local clients an opportunity to speak with the high-quality people and companies we engage to work on your home.
Prior to construction, you as homeowner will select all components and items, because some commodities have long order times.
Professional Pre-Construction Documentation & Reporting
Blue Ribbon then obtains specific price quotes from siding, framing, HVAC, plumbing and electrical contractors. Depending on the complexity of the project, consultation with a structural engineer may be required. Once quotes are received, we compile the information into a report that includes the:
- Project Specifications Sheet – This contains details such as the calculation of allowances, footing definitions, structural data, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, finish components, options and any work to be performed by the owners.
- Construction Agreement – Includes legalities and schedules for payments. The content outlines the protections for the consumer as well as Blue Ribbon.
A two- to three-hour meeting allows the homeowner to review the report, which is typically 20 to 30 pages long — you are also free to ask any questions for clarity.
To finalize the plans for construction, Blue Ribbon will add the information required by the building department. The homeowner and Blue Ribbon Residential Construction will then authorize the project to begin.
